Recently I received some amazing pins from a company called Power Up Pins who create their own uniquely design enamel and engraved pins around gaming, geek and popular culture. I don’t often collect this sort of thing, but on a trip to Disney World in Florida a few years ago, I got pretty hooked on their designs based on classic characters and rides, and as I was really impressed with these, I thought I’d do a review.
Gamestop has decided it will no longer sell console bundles that include digital copies of games. Personally I think this is a great move for gamers and collectors, although I don’t think we were the core focus. This appears to be more of a business decision for protecting GameStop’s future.
I love playing pool. It’s a game I’ve enjoyed playing for numerous years with my Dad and friends. Recently one of my favourite places to play closed down. On the same day I heard the news, I was asked to review a copy of Pure Pool for the Xbox One. Strange coincidence? Let’s see how this game matches up against the real thing…
I must admit that I haven’t played an awful lot of golf games in the past. My main experiences were more party-based games featuring Mario or using the Xbox Kinect. In real life, I’ve had my fare share of “pitch and putt” and “crazy golf”, but I’ve never really had the opportunity to play (and learn) real golf. So when I was asked to try out this new game, I thought I’d give it a shot!
